    Hmm, and the lesson of this is, ah, eh… Don’t leave anything worth stealing in the car. Dang, boy, what a concept! Then save yourself a busted window and leave it unlocked. LOL Cost me a couple hundred to learn this lesson, but it sure stuck.

    • I’ve left some crappy old CDs in my car in the hopes someone would steal them, but no one has yet. :(

    If they are high school teenage criminals on a crime spree, but they get good grades and play sports in school, Winslow PD will call them “good kids” if they get caught.

    What? you dont believe it? Read two paragraphs from the bottom, on this crime spree last summer:

    Locks only keep out honest people…..

  • I have by accident left my wallet sitting on my passenger seat overnight. Thankfully it was still there in the morning but I honestly didn’t know I left it there. Now if one leaves a wallet or purse in the vehicle on purpose and it gets stolen, I feel no pity for you.

      You left your wallet visible on the seat by accident and yet you are so harsh with others who do the same thing?

      • Again, read what I wrote. Did you miss the word on purpose or did you simply skip over it?

          You’re right, I missed the word ‘purpose’. My apologies and have a great turkey day!

  • Lock Up Your Car !

    • Seriously? Read the story….they broke the windows out.

        Good point CJ.
        After police tell everyone to lock their doors, thieves start breaking windows to enter vehicles.

    For under $100, one can buy and place a small device that you set up in your vehicle. when your vehicle doors open up, in 1 second your cell phone sitting next to you in bed ‘calls you’ to let you know…with photo too.
    Then for under $40, a driveway alarm,that goes off before a criminal reaches your vehicle.

    Wallet is in my pocket or on my nightstand at all times. I could care less if someone wants my FM Transmitter (which is crap anyway) or a few dollars in loose change. Moral of the story, don’t leave any personal valuables in your vehicle.
